Tap. Pours clear butterscotch with a small white head and good lacing. Unfortunately, that was the high point. Aroma is earthy, feet, must, mushrooms, touch of vomit. Flavor is nowhere near that bad, but not good either - lightly sweet, light bitter. Medium body.

illidurit (2052) - Petaluma, USA - JUN 23, 2013
On tap at the RateBeer Gallery event in SF. Pours orange-tinged gold with a fluffy off-white head. Pale malt is the dominant note, with some mild citrus from the hops. Kinda just malty, bland and boring.

12 ounce sample at Flavor in Santa Rosa. Very floral hop aroma with a moderate sweet character, too. Very perfumey. Not sure if that is the hop, or attributable to some soap in the the glass. Transparent yellow body with a strong, medium white head present, and great lacing. Starts with some floral sweetness, before a light biscuit maltiness takes over Finishes with an herbal, sharp hop bitterness. Almost astringent. I am not sure what the ABV is, but it seems a little hot. Quite bitter. Seems a little lager-ish. Is this a super hoppy lager?

Misspent Youth had a potent hoppiness turned funky pine flavor. Earthy, thatís a good word for it. The smell was a little cat-littery too. It wasnít as smooth as Iíd expect out of an APA.

OldGrowth (2487) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Ok aroma, grassy, sourdough, lemon. Clean brownish orange. Nice head and lace. Bitter flavor. Lite body, smooth oily mouthfeel, bitter finish. Itís fine, like a lot of other apaís out there. Appearance was best part. Had nice fluffy head some clinging lace. Reminds me of pisgah or northampton pale ales.

joeneugs (2934) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 20, 2011
God, I love Moonlight Brewing Co! This pours golden with an amazing white head. The aroma is very hoppy with some sweet notes of tropical fruit, and a bit of crackery malt. The flavor is outstanding with a perfect dry, hoppy palate and crackery malt followed by some earthy eucalyptus and tropical fruit. Finish is complex and full of spicy hops. Loved it.

Clear redish orange with a fizzy white head. Earthy hoppy aroma and taste with some balancing maltiness and a brassy finish.

brokensail (9959) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 3, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a fingerís worth of off-white head and some scarce lacing. S: A decent citrus note to the beer, but the hop character is more toward the floral side. Lots of bready malts and a decent amount of spicy and earthy notes. T: Lots earthy and floral hops up front, but the hop flavor dies away pretty quickly. Bready malts with a bit of metal, and maybe even some skunk. This is really bitter for a pale ale, and it sort of overwhelms the rest of the beer. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: Not one of the better Moonlight beers. Too bitter without much good hop flavor.
